Kailee |Senior 2018 |Fall Session

We did Kailee’s full session back this summer on what was one of the hottest days in July.  We met up this month on a BEAUTIFUL fall day to do some more pictures.  When planning a fall session you can guess when you think the trees will be pretty but you never know when the trees will be in their prime; well we guessed right because she had some of the most beautiful trees for her session! Just look for yourself, the fall colors are WOW! Now that I’ve gone on and on and about how perfect the weather was and how great the trees were, let me be real for a minute.  During her session we somehow locked the keys in my car and had to ride around to our different locations with Kailee and her family.  Oh and not just our keys were locked in the car but also both our phones; so we had to use their phone to call and have someone come pick us up.  I kept telling Kailee that it was a good thing she had done a session with us previously or she would have thought we were a real hot mess of photographers. Even though all this craziness ensued during her session we were still able to get some great pictures of Kailee.  Thanks for putting up with our crazy Kailee! It has been an absolute blast to get to know you this year, and it was so hard to narrow down my favorites for the blog, but that’s a good problem to have. 🙂
